    I hate to do this becuse I love this bass. It has tons of killer tones and is the easiest playing bass I have ever played. I have to fund other stuff right now though, so this one's up for sale. Here are the stats:

    MusicMan Bongo Bass

    Selected basswood carved body
    Radical body design
    Selected maple neck
    Rosewood fingerboard
    5-bolt neck joint
    Dual neodymium humbuckers
    4-band EQ
    Continuous pickup balance
    Schaller BM tuners
    Tapered string posts
    Hardened steel bridge plate with stainless steel saddles
    Easily accessible truss rod
    Matching headstock
    Body cavity shielded with graphite acrylic resin coating

    I'll include an old hardshell case.

    The bass has no damage, but I can't call it mint because the "satin" finish on the back of the neck shows that it's had some playing time. I've probably played it about 10-15 hours. This is slight but I thought I should mention it.

    I wouldn't mind trades for a 5-string, but it would have to be a stellar deal. Cash is probably the best option for me. Make an offer if you think my price is too high. This may be the first pre-owned Bongo up for sale, so have at it.

    Okay, while taking pictures I discovered a tiny scratch in the very top layer of the finish. It's on the back of the bass. You can't see it in the picture from only 3 feet away, so I took a closeup.
     
  8. Yep, the one I had was sold in the first day. I'm sure this one will go quick too.

    For anybody just glancing through, the last post that says it sold was talking about a different bass. This one is still available.

    Okay, how about $1000 shipped? Any takers?

    I'd also trade for a nice 5-string if you have any trade offers.

    Is this still available? Would you consider a trade for a Pedulla Rapture JJ-2000 5 string?

    I've been waiting for Joe Nerve for over a month. I figured he either wanted one with different features or didn't have the money saved up yet.

    I thought about PM'ing him, but that seemed like soliciting to me.
